Environment, Impact and Aesthetics - a new EIA for Natural Scotland

This is a project funded by Creative Scotland and Imaging Natural Scotland on designing creative responses to capture a sense of the place, value and meaning that are inherent in landscapes - and translate this into a form which feeds into the EIA and planning processes for wind farms. 

Working with artists, it developed a range of innovative ways to understand how a wind farm changes a landscape and the meaning that that landscape has for the people.  The results are an additional chapter to a traditional planning document for a wind farm application, which explore key issues of people, place and community.
